Back on the Horse tells the story of Olympic equestrian, Bill Roycroft’s campaign for the Rome Olympics.
Born on the wrong side of the tracks, Bill Roycroft and his childhood friend and fellow Rome team member, Laurie Morgan grew up in a world where it’s not what you know, but who you know that counts
It’s an incredible tale of an athlete from humble beginnings who went onto achieve extraordinary success. Bill Roycroft left an enduring legacy – representing Australia five times, winning three Olympic medals, including riding injured to secure the team gold medal at Rome.
Regardless of what life throws at us, Bill Roycroft’s story inspires us all – to always get back on the horse.
A toxic childhood friendship drives a working-class equestrian to defy the establishment to secure his place on the Australian team at the Rome Olympics.
